GitHub Pages redirecting all my .md pages to folders now

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi folks,

 

UPDATE 16th May 2019 20:24:

GitHub has confirmed there was an issue and are now deploying a fix:
https://www.githubstatus.com/incidents/6vyp7d36str6

 

----

 

I notice that pages that were previously working such as:

www.nickhatter.com/about

 

Are now for some reason now redirecting to

www.nickhatter.com/about/

 

Which results in a 404. Oh dear!

 

Did GitHub pages recently change their Hostfile config or something?

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers,

Nick

It appears it's affecting many GitHub users:

TEMP WORKAROUND:
- Call /pagename.html directly
- Or try putting in your page header:

----
permalink: /pagename/
----

 

Knew it was only a matter of time before Microsoft screwed up ;-)

OK, the redirect problem seems to have stopped.

 

Tested across Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

 

Will keep an eye out for an official GitHub response.
